    Talking Fussball Extra - Aufstieg season in review edition on the thrills, spills, chills and flare-ups in the 2. Bundesliga and below

    What a season we've just put in the rearview mirror here on the Aufstieg edition. Wild scenes in the relegation playoffs, disappointing late-season collapses from SV Darmstadt and FC St. Pauli, and who could forget Markus Anfang's falsified vaccine passport? Nik and Jasmine certainly couldn't - and they've got plenty of other memories to share too, along with teams of the season.

    Talking Fussball Extra - Aufstieg edition making sense of the relegation playoffs that saw Hertha stay up and Kaiserslautern leap into the 2. Bundesliga

    Talking Fussball Extra - Aufstieg edition making sense of the relegation playoffs that saw Hertha stay up and Kaiserslautern leap into the 2. Bundesliga

    It's one of those special German things: Relegation playoffs pitting the third-best team in a lower division against the third-worst team from the division above. This time out, Hertha BSC staged a second-leg comeback to ensure they'd stay in the top flight at Hamburger Sport-Verein's expense, while in the lower-tiered clash, 1. FC Kaiserslautern exited the 3. Liga by beating SG Dynamo Dresden 2-0 away after a scoreless first leg at the Betzenberg. Listen in as Nik and Jasmine take you through the drama, as well as mull over what it means for Hertha to stay up, HSV to stay down, and for 'Lautern and Dresden to swap divisions....

    TF Extra - Aufstieg edition on the conclusion of the 2.BL soap opera

    It was fun while it lasted for them, but Werder Bremen made it out of the 2. Liga after just one year. Hamburg may join them after their four-season stint, but they still have to knock off Hertha to seal the deal. Lost of other promotion and relegation drama across the lower leagues - Nik and the gang are here to wrap it all up in a bow.

    Talking Fussball Direct MD34 wrap - High drama in Stuttgart and the teams who can be most (and least) satisfied at season's end

    Talking Fussball Direct MD34 wrap - High drama in Stuttgart and the teams who can be most (and least) satisfied at season's end

    Well wasn't that a rousing way to end a season? VfB Stuttgart's last gasp winner (combined with BVB's late go-ahead goal) was enough to let the Swabians stay put in the top flight, and send Hertha BSC into the relegation play-off. Lots to discuss from MD34, as well as plenty to ponder about which teams can feel satisfied heading into the offseason. In fact, Matt and Terry sort out where all 18 teams stand on the satisfaction scale...

    TF Extra - Aufstieg edition on Schalke's promotion party, Bremen and HSV nearing their destination, and Kaiserslautern going bonkers

    TF Extra - Aufstieg edition on Schalke's promotion party, Bremen and HSV nearing their destination, and Kaiserslautern going bonkers

    It's a heady time of year, what with all the lower league promotion races coming to a head - you might say it's Aufstieg season. Nik and Jasmine talk over all the big stories from the 2. BL on down: FC Schalke 04 are ready to re-join the top flight; Werder Bremen, Hamburger SV, and SV Darmstadt are still in with a shout; 1. FC Kaiserslautern pick a mighty fine time to remind people it's got a huge capacity for madness.

    TF Direct MD33 wrap - Leverkusen punch their Champions League ticket as Eintracht's Europa League adventure continues

    It's only natural that a few questions got answered on the second-to-last match day of the 2021-22 Bundesliga season. Union and Cologne were delighted to know they'd reached Europe next year, Leverkusen got on next year's UEFA Champions League train, and Eintracht Frankfurt will have a chance to join them now that they've reached the Europa League final. Brian Sanders of the Hey Eintracht Frankfurt podcast joins Matt to talk about the Eagles' latest sensation, relegation battle intrigue and much more.

Best in class Bundesliga coverage

Have been consistently impressed the with Talking Fussball - it has quickly become one of my main sources of news, analysis, and commentary on the Bundesliga and German Soccer more broadly. Strongly recommend. I also recommend investing in the patreon - they’ve made a great push this fall to increase the content on that channel.

Almost Perfect

Always have great information and discussion, easy to listen to and enjoy it weekly. However, FC Bayern München ist mein verein, and I normally have to skip past most Bayern talk, especially this latest Der Klassiker discussion. Completely understand y’alls standpoint but the discussion typically has a bit of an “I want Bayern to fail” vibe instead of an “I want the rest of the league to match Bayern’s winning mentality” flavor. 4.5 out of 5 stars. Recommend for any BuLi fans.
